CCTVs/Video Magnifiers

Product Description Video magnifier that consists of a control box and a small television camera in an ergonomic, handheld mouse. The camera incorporates a zoom lens that allows the level of magnification to be altered without refocusing. The magnified image is displayed on a standard television in high-contrast black-on-white or white-on-black for text, or in full-color photo mode for photographs. Mouse rollers can be used to facilitate easy scanning of text, allowing difficult-to-read items such as medicine bottles or cooking instructions on food containers to be magnified easily. An overview mode can be used for orientation or for tasks, such as looking at one's own face. All functions can be controlled from the mouse. Optional handwriting stand available. Offers a magnification range of 18x on a 14" screen and 13x-26x on a 21" screen.
